Chicks Versus Dicks

"Men are from Mars and women are from Venus”—that is the age-old phrase that best explains the seemingly endless battle of the sexes. And while we technically aren’t from different universes, this mantra indicates a truth that we have learned to accept: we differ in more ways than not.

They say opposites attract though, right?

THE BASICS

The differences between sexes are some of the first things noticeable at birth because of our telling…

The Kingdom and I: My Plight With Saudi Arabia

Good morning new day in Jeddah. It’s my last week here on this seasonal trip and, as usual, I’m getting anxious about my passport and my return visa. I always get anxious near the end of my trips to Saudi Arabia. Should I make that call and find out if it’s been issued and if I can have my passport back?

I've been a published writer for almost 20 years, but until I self-published this year, I was reluctant to call myself a real writer. The whole process was expensive and tiring, like pushing a boulder up a steep mountain in an evening gown and pumps.
